I've been through a few fairly major transitions lately. In the last six months I have:
- Sold my house
- Moved my residence from one state to another--in short, I moved back to my hometown after 43 years.
- Navigated day job from working in an office, to working from home
- Started a new romantic relationship
- Started writing under a new pen name.
If someone would have told me last year that from May to November of 2017 all of these things--or even one of these things--was going to happen, I would have poo-pooed the notion and laughed myself silly.
But sometimes change happens upon us quickly and with good reason--which was the case with me. One decision made led to the next, and before I knew it, I was living on a roller coaster of transition for several weeks, er, months.
A couple of weeks ago, near the end of this process, I was beginning to feel the stress creep in and I knew that sooner or later I needed to go into my cave--wherever that cave was, anyway--and regroup.
Regrouping is always a good thing when life overwhelms. At any rate, I digress.
Yes, I started writing under a new pen name. I am morphing (transitioning?) an old Maddie James collection of contemporary romance novels into a new series. So why the heck not, in this era of transition and change, just toss these revised and rewritten books into the world under a new name? Why the heck not? Let's not make this past six months any easier, right?
So I did. I am. All in process and this transition is going to go on for a log longer than 6 months, but I believe it will be worth it. You can read more about this new book launch on my blog here.
